    Re: Cant find a manta exhaust for my VE SV6 ute

    I just bought mine from Not An Abba Fan. He is in WA. He usually replies within 24 hours if not quicker. When I eventually ordered one it got to my place in VIC in 2-3 days. Super quick in my book.

    Maybe try him again as he may have missed your first or he simply has taken the weekend off! ;-) If it was me I would wait for the Manta. You won't regret it and it sh1ts all over the xforce. Otherwise try the old fashioned way and contact him through his business which can be found on his profile. Another option is his Facebook page.

    Best of luck!

    If they make it specifically for the SV6, it'd be silly if you lost power...

    Edit: Why don't you reply to not_an_abba_fan?

    You might lose some (negligible) top end power but should see some slight compensating gains in the low to mid range torque. Power isn't everything ya know!

    Have you had a look at the fun happy times sv6 exhaust thread. Plenty of youtube references there. http://forums.justcommodores.com.au...ssive-fun-happy-time-exhaust-thread-11-a.html

    I don't think it is necessary to spend big on your system. Buy a decent set of rear cans....I'd look at Redback or Berkley (PEX)...bolt them on and see how you go. If you want a stainless system later then fair enough but I'd wait until your current system falls apart first and just buy some rear mufflers in the meantime.
